The definitive Silvano Lattanzi thread - Page 2
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Hi, new to the forum and had to post these gems that I snapped up at a local thrift store a while back for $5. Some idiot put the price stickers on the insoles right over top of Silvano's signature, which was extremely tough to remove without losing all the ink but I got most of it off. I'm wondering if anyone has any information about them, would be curious to learn. I'm not sure what style of shoe this is or anything. They fit me perfectly and are extremely comfortable so I'm not interested in selling them – They feel like no other shoe I've ever worn.
I applied some Lexol leather conditioner to the shoe on the left in the photo, the shoe on the right was only cleaned with a damp cloth. The shoes were really dusty and dry when I got them but no cracking. Going to probably take them to a professional to have them shined up (don't worry, I didn't use the Kiwi in the corner of the photo) and possibly have the soles repaired a bit (seems that someone had worn them in the rain and then walked across a beach parking lot as they're a lot of small pebbles embedded in the leather – a real shame, but nothing serious). Any tips for care etc would also be appreciated as I've never owned such a nice pair of shoes!
I'm not sure whether anyone ended up buying them, although I was told that at least one pair had sold to a gentleman with rather outre clothing tastes.
As Brioni, models are $5k+. As Lattanzi, more.
I need some help from the experts. I recently acquired these beauties. The box says cordovan nero however the leather does not feel like the horween shell that I'm used to. They don't feel quite like calf either. Are there different kinds of cordovan that Lattanzi uses? The shoes have not been worn yet, only tried on.
